Health Science/Medical Biology Degree
Bachelor of Arts (B.A.)
The Health Sciences/Medical Biology Bachelor of Arts degree is a pre-professional, pre-med program for students continuing on to medical, dental, veterinary, physical therapy and other allied health related programs. The degree was designed for students not only interested in a medical career, but also for those called by the Lord to go into medicine as a ministry.
Our health sciences degree program prepares students at our Minnesota campus for future schooling or other medically-related options. This major will challenge students as they discover the academic rigor and scientific inquiry necessary to become confident, competent leaders in the medical field.
Health Sciences/Medical Biology Major (B.A.) Courses
All major core classes must be completed with a grade of C or higher.
Students should work closely with an advisor to determine the science electives best suited to their area of medical interest. Electives could include: PSY 336 , SCI 250 , SCI 312X , SCI 325 , SCI 350 , SCI 359 , SCI 380 , SCI 415 , or SCI 437 .
At least 30% of this degree, or a minimum of 38 credits, must be at the upper (300-400) level.
* Some courses from the Christian Studies Core and Major Core can be used to fulfill requirements in the General Education Core. By doing that the number of electives needed would increase so that the minimum of 125 credits is reached.
1 Select humanities electives from COM, ENG, ESL, FAR, HIS, HUM, LAN, MUS, PHI, or PRC.
2 Select social science electives from ANT, CSJ, ECO, ESL, GEO, HIS, POL, PSY, or SOC.
3 Fine arts courses include music, art, drama, and dance. COM 328 also qualifies as a fine arts elective. (Only three credits of music organizations and/or lessons can be counted toward humanities/fine arts requirements.)
Students apply for departmental acceptance during their sophomore year spring semester or their junior year fall semester. A minimum 2.0 cumulative GPA and completion of half of the Christian Service requirements are required for departmental admission in the Health Sciences/Medical Biology major.
